Organic Basics was founded and is run from Copenhagen and you will find all their suppliers in Europe. The brand provides comprehensive information about their suppliers, many of which hold industry standards such as GOTS, SA8000, OEKO-TEX or Bluesign®. They are B-Corp certified organisation (alongside Patagonia and All Birds) which means they are balancing profit and purpose. Even their head office is fitted out with second hand furniture and is working towards eliminating plastic!
Organic Basics are taking our sustainable shopping to the next level by offering a low impact website. Their eco-friendly site reduces carbon consumption by 70% compared to their old site. Through some simple changes they have reduced the transfer of data which requires electricity and consequently carbon emissions.
